Hey guys! You’re probably aware that i didn’t post on Wednesday again and today is Monday not Sunday but I think I’m gonna be just posting weekly again as I’ve been really busy and I was going to start posting every Sunday again when I get back to school anyway, (which is just over a week, please don’t make me go) I hope you don’t mind! Also, I’ve got a dance show next Sunday so I will probably be posting that post on Saturday instead so I don’t have to stress about it. Okay so now we’ve gotten all that out of the way, I thought I’d share an amazing recipe for a lemon drizzle loaf. I will put my hands up in saying that I have actually not made this before but I gave the recipe to my auntie and she made an absolutely amazing one so I thought I’d share the deliciousness with you
You will need:
- A 22cm loaf tin
- Greaseproof paper
- Wooden spoon
- A mixing bowl
- A skewer
• 170g unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
• 170g caster sugar
• 3 eggs
• 170g self raising flower
• 1 teaspoon baking powder
• Zest of 2 lemons
For the drizzle
• 150g icing sugar, plus extra for dusting
• Juice of 2 lemons
1-Preheat oven to 180’C/350’F/GM4. Lightly grease the loaf tin and line with greaseproof paper
2-Cream together the butter and sugar, then mix in the eggs
3- Add the flour, baking powder and lemon zest and mix until smooth and well combined
4- Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 30 minutes or until golden and risen and a skewer poked into the centre of the loaf comes out clean!
5- Mix together the icing sugar and lemon juice until smooth and the sugar has dissolved. While the loaf is still warm, poke holes into it with a skewer and pour over the drizzle
6- Leave to cool in the tin, then turn out into a plate and serve, dusted with icing sugar.
So there you have it!! That’s Tanya’s small but sweet recipe for lemon drizzle loaf.
